When they’re the one’s who are happy?

Why despair at hunger, sickness and death
When we can smile because we’re so lucky?
Why worry about the world
When 2012 is coming, so it doesn’t matter anyway?
Why frown at my jokes when you could at least smirk and make me feel better?
Why not enjoy the music while you can?
Why not laugh?
